Two Toyota models honored by the IIHS

In our last post, we noted how dealerships will be clamoring to create space for the newest 2016 models. Because of this, buyers will likely find great discounts on 2015 models that are seemingly just as new. While some automakers will entice buyers with limited discounts on the newest models, others will tout the honors and additions their new offerings bring.

For Toyota, the Japanese automaker can claim two major awards that will help in its promotion of its Lexus ES and Scion iA models. The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) named both vehicles to its list of Top Safety Pick Plus models. 

While the Lexus was previously noted as a Top Safety Pick (not a Top Safety Pick Plus), there were several improvements that brought the car to the next level. Essentially, the car performed better in the front overlap crash test, and the crash test dummies used were secure in the cabin in various tests. Moreover, the car’s crash avoidance system was improved and performed well in 12 mph and 25 mph tests.

As for the Scion iA, the car performed well with in front overlap tests and was able to protect the crash test dummy well in different crashes. The front crash avoidance system also performed well at 12 miles per hour.

Indeed, these safety features make it less likely that a driver will be seriously injured in a crash (or even be involved in one). However, drivers must still use reasonable care while behind the wheel. Failing to do so could leave a driver liable in the event of an accident
